Old Post Office clock tower

Cool winter weather makes for nice skies and interesting lighting here on the coast. I was out walking my dog the other day when I noticed the clock tower on one of our Main Street buildings, known to locals as the "Old Post Office" - not to be confused with the New Post Office (also on Main).

The clock is no longer in operation (although I understand that someone has all the parts for it, should you feel so inclined...) but it still stands solidly at the far end of Main Street. Considering that 99% of our homes and civic buildings in the town are wooden clapboard, this 1940s angular, brick construction really stands out!
